I have purchased an Akitio Node after i have seen a video posted in Youtube   that was able to make an external GPU work. After days of searching for an RX 480 Graphics Card as used in the video, i ended up buying an Asus Geforce GTX 1060 Dual Series 6GB DDR5. After installing the GPU Card in the Akitio Node, I was so excited to see how it works but to no avail 🙁

So far what i have achieve, is the first step in the video where

  1. I booted my laptop to windows 10,
  2. installed the Intel Thunderbolt 3 driver and
  3. flashed the new firmware to the Akitio Node.

After the steps above, When I hot plug the akitio node to the macbook pro (with windows on), suddenly i will get a BSOD.  If I boot windows while the Akitio Node is plugged in, the display will flicker on the windows bootup logo then it will freeze and i needed to force turn-off the macbook.  I am losing hope that i could make my egpu setup work, that's why i came to your website  for help.

 

Thank you!

Question: Do I need to execute automate-eGPU.sh even though I want my egpu to work only in windows bootcamp due to unsupported GPU Card (Asus GTX 1060)?

Hey did you have any luck with your setup? I'm with the same issue.
